Over the Memorial Day weekend, we reported on a FarmVille player who was scammed out of $400. Here's how it went down: The player received an instant message from a FarmVille 'friend' (or someone she thought was a FarmVille friend), which contained a link.

Contrary to common sense, the victim clicked on the link, and -- wouldn't you know it -- the other party snagged all of her credit card information. Soon she was out $400. Instead of blaming the person who send the link, this FarmVille player has pointed the finger at FarmVille creator Zynga, demanding that the company refund her stolen cash.

What do you think? Is Zynga to blame in this case? Sound off in our Lunchtime Poll below:
